Superstar quarterback Tom Brady has ended his illustrious career as an NFL pro for the second time.

“Hey guys, I want to get straight to the point. I’m stopping,” said the most successful football player in history in a nearly one-minute video on Twitter. He thanked him for being able to live his absolute dream. Then his voice caught. A good two weeks ago, Brady was eliminated by the 14:31 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL playoffs.

After leaving last season, Brady had already declared his incomparable career with a total of seven victories in the Super Bowl over. 40 days later, the now 45-year-old athlete changed his mind and decided to play for the Buccaneers for another year. Now he stressed that his decision was final.

A record will remain

After a total of 23 years in the best football league in the world, it should be over. “I know it was a pretty big deal last time,” Brady said. He had obviously found a spot on the beach for his video message, and there was a strong wind in the background.

US media had recently speculated about the end of his career, but a change to another team also seemed possible. He is now denied the hoped-for eighth Super Bowl triumph, but his seven rings for six wins with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February 2021 are already a record and will remain so for years to come – no one else still active professional in the NFL comes to more than three.
